„AI Visions and Narratives” (17th and 18th of September 2020): Cambridge / Berlin Workshop

Due to COVID-19, this event will be held virtually.

Registration is closed.

The Present Futures Forum (Technische Universität Berlin) and the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence (University of Cambridge) are delighted to announce the „AI Visions and Narratives” (17th and 18th of September 2020): Cambridge / Berlin Workshop.

Different cultures see Artificial Intelligence through very different lenses: diverse religious, linguistic, philosophical, literary, and cinematic traditions have led to diverging conceptions of what intelligent machines can and should be. The Global AI Narratives: Germany workshop is another in a series of events dedicated to the dissemination of these diverse AI narratives around the world. 

The two-day event, held virtually, will consist of a research workshop with four panels covering a range of relevant topics. For any inquiries, please email Gerrit Rößler.
